WHY CHOOSE BARKOGRAPHY?
Because you and your pet deserve a one of a kind experience with someone who truly understands how much you love your dog.
Because you want his personality captured in a natural way.
Because he won't be here forever and you don't want to experience the regret of not having professional images of him.
Because a BARKography session is more than just taking pictures of your dog, it's capturing moments in time. It’s capturing the essence of his personality.
Consider yourself warned: we may become friends and I will fall in love with your dog.
HOW DOES THIS WORK?
The process is easy and streamlined.
You contact me and we have a conversation so I can get to know you and your dog.
You answer questions like "why do you want him photographed and what do you love most about him?"
You receive the welcome packet full of great information to help you and your pet get ready.
We choose a date, time and location.
You pay the session retainer, sign the agreement and complete a form telling me all about the furry love of your life.
The big day arrives and your dog is a total rockstar.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE SESSION?
I start to work right away on getting the photos ready for you to see.
The process usually takes 1-2 weeks as I select, edit and retouch the images.
Approximately 2 weeks after the session, we have the viewing and ordering appointment where you will view your images, select your favorites, see product samples and place your order.
After you've made your selections, I do meticulous final edits and retouching.
I place your order and within 3-4 weeks you are enjoying your beautiful artwork.
WHAT'S A VIEWING AND ORDERING APPOINTMENT?
The viewing and ordering appointment is when you see all the images and the products I offer.
It usually takes place at my house in the Southpark area.
You will get to touch, hold and feel all of the products offered which include a variety of wall art, desktop items and albums so you can choose what you'd like to order.
I will guide you through the selection process so are 100% satisfied with your choices.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The total cost is up to you but most clients spend $500+ on their customized experience.
MY DOG CAN'T BE OFF LEASH OR ISN'T WELL TRAINED. CAN YOU STILL PHOTOGRAPH HIM?
Yes, your dog can stay on leash during the entire session.
With most dogs it is easier to direct them if they are on leash.
Many of the dogs featured on the website were on leash.
Removing the leash is part of the editing process. Click here to go to see a before and after photo.
WHAT CAN I DO TO PREPARE FOR THE SESSION?
Start thinking about how and where you'd like to display your new artwork.
Be sure to read through the welcome packet when you receive it and always feel free to ask questions.
CAN I HELP DURING THE SESSION?
Absolutely. You may help with posing your dog or getting his attention as I'm photographing him.
You'll receive gentle guidance from me.
CAN I BE PHOTOGRAPHED TOO?
Yes of course.
The main focus of the session is on your dog but if you'd like to be in a few photos, I love capturing the bond between a dog and his human.
WHAT'S YOUR BACKGROUND?
I have worked with dogs full time since 2009 when I started my own dog walking and pet sitting business See Spot Run LLC.
It's that experience and a life long passion for dogs that helps me know how to capture each individual dog's personality.
WHAT'S YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE?
I've photographed my own dogs for years.
I've been a professional photographer since 2014 and I've photographed hundreds of dogs since that time.
I've attended pet photography workshops in Barcelona, Costa Rica and Breckinridge CO and have learned alongside some of the most talented dog photographers in the world.
I've been hired to photograph dogs across the US and Canada.
